HELP!!! =)
so I've got mythbuntu running on two frontend trying on both to get Myth to bring up the Exit/Shutdown/Reboot menu via pressing a key on the remote.

I"ve got myth responding to Alt-Escape from the keyboard to bring up the menu, which from the keyboard works fine. But when I assign any of
alt-esc
alt+esc
alt-escape
alt+escape
to a button on the remote (which irw says lirc is receiving the keypress) Myth doesn't respond.

Does anyone have this working? How did you accomplish it?

well it looks like Myth doesn't respond to Alt-Escape or Ctrl-Escape or Meta-Escape via the remote control or the telnet socket.
